, must be because i was just so smart. there are a lot of smart people out there. bill: take us into the mind frame for a comment like that. white house would come out and argue and i imagine they will government has a purpose and that was the point the president was trying to make. the point you're making this goes back to his days a as community organizer. explain that. >> well, i think in essence when you're a community organizer you're basically dealing with a lot of people disadvantaged you're trying to get them government assistance or welfare checks or whatever and the other part of the story though is that people who are creating jobs are getting up every day and going to work and working very, very hard. this should be a campaign celebrating the american worker. his story in itself is successful story. bill: president obama. >> president obama. i think to certain extent but reflect as mindset. it is the mindset the contrast between what romney and his campaign will be about. we can again become a great leader of the world as we always have been. we can get americans bac

on the cayman islands. so what is it mitt romney doesn't want us to know? maybe it's in the tax returns he refuses to share, or the felony he might have commitmented by making false statements about his role at bain. we understand, mitt, sometimes the truth is tricky. tricky mitt. he's not a crook, right? moveon.org political action is responsible for the content of this advertisement. >> that ad will start running tomorrow in ohio, where mitt romney is scheduled to the campaign. romney campaigned today in pittsburgh, where he tried to do a donald trump impression without ever actually using the words, "birth certificate." >> in the past, people of both parties understood that encouraging achievement, encouraging success, encouraging people to lift themselves as high as they can, encouraging entrepreneurs, celebrating success instead of attacking it and denigrating makes america strong. that's the right course for this country. his course is extraordinarily foreign. >> while romney was visiting pittsburgh, celebrating his success, team obama chose to introduce a new television ad on pittsb
, this is a guy who admitted to cocaine use, had a sweetheart deal with his house in chicago and was associated and worked with rod blagojevich to get valerie jaret appointed to the senate. there will be counter attacks. now we understand why romney attack dog john sununu went on fox news and called obama a pot head from hawaii. >> he has no idea how the american system functions. wetient be surprised about that because he spent his early years in hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in indonesia. >> drug use, allegations, and tony resco, all that stuff, they're not the only old tricks pulls from the hat. joe arpaio was putting birtherism back in the news cycle. >> we believe that the certificate presented to the american public by the white house is a forgery. >> well, sheriff joe isn't part of the romney campaign, but that didn't stop romney surrogate donald trump from tweeting today. as i always said, the birthers were after the truth. thanks to sheriff joe. they're banking that they're not going to believe or know who the president of the united states is and they have some
to have that debate. michael sandel, beautiful book. worth reading. thank you again. join us some other jennifer granholm. >> jennifer: i'm jennifer granholm. tonight in "the war room," hey mitt, when are you coming clean on your taxes? mitt romney still backed into a corner. shielding himself from tax questions, bain attacks and outsourcing charges. the man has run for senator governor president after campaigning for almost 20 years will mitt romney finally come clean or will he try to point in another direction any direction? >> celebrating success instead of attacking and denigrating makes america strong. that's the right course for this country. >> jennifer: mitt. it didn't work then. it won't work now. we'll take down more of romney's secrets and lies tonight in "the war room." >> jennifer: the crowd at president obama's rally in san antonio, texas today had a message for his opponent yelling "show us your taxes"! and as we've reported, it is not just democrats. there is a growing chorus of republicans cla

romney willing to show is us the money? let's see why he is so qualified based on his declaration that he is a very good businessman. let's see it, mitt. >> let's see what carl had to say on "morning joe" about this. >> to quote a book title, i think romney's taxes are a game changer. it is extraordinary to have someone running for president that won't show his tax returns. he will have to show them. >> washington post abc poll asked about the handling of the campaign and how they are dealing with it. 20% of the republicans have an unfavorable view. independents said unfavorable more than favorable. could this be what sinks his presidential ambitions? >> i think it is extraordinary that this is a controversy mitt romney's doing. republicans will only go so far about his economic success because it is fundamental to their believes. he has waited until the summer when the news cycle is slower. he has people like us who have nothing more to do than to talk about the campaign other than mitt romney and who he is. we know who barack obama is. he made this issue front and center. it is the only

, 2012. >>> good morning. thanks for joining us. i'm duarte geraldino. mitt romney's business experience is taking center stage in campaign 2012. at issue is whether romney was in control of the private equity firm he ran, bain capital, when it sent jobs overseas. he says no. but bain documents appear to indicate otherwise. meanwhile, president obama reflected on his first two years in office. tara mergener is in washington. good morning, tara. >> good morning, duarte. that's right. president obama says he would do a better job of inspiring if he's re-elected and this as the battle between the campaigns rages on now with accusations of lying. president obama hits the road today for campaign events in the battleground state of virginia. before heading out, he took time for an interview with cbs' charlie rose where he admitted to some mistakes. >> well, you know, he's been juggling and managing a lot of stuff. where is the story that tells us where he's going? i think that was a legitimate criticism. >> the president says it spared a question everything about a presidential candidate and t
and managing a lot of stuff. where is the story that tells us where he's going? i think that was a legitimate criticism. >> the president says it spared a question everything about a presidential candidate and the obama campaign has some questions about mitt romney's time at bain capital. a report from the boston globe says romney filed paperwork with the government where he claimed to be the sole owner and ceo of the private equity firm as late as 2002. the romney campaign says he had no input on investments or management of the company after he left to take charge of the winter olympics in 1999. at the heart of the issue, who was in charge of bain during the years from 1999 until 2001? that was the time period when bain ran companies that went bankrupt and invested in others that shipped jobs overseas. >> does virginia really want an outsourcer in chief in the white house? . >> the obama campaign ad has been running for weeks hammering romney over the outsourcing issue. >> it's false and misleading. >> the romney campaign is hitting back with its own ads. >> the obama outsourcing attacks mi
that work out? >> frankly, i made a mistake. i shouldn't have used those words. and i apologize for using those words, but i don't apologize for the idea that this president has demonstrated that he does not understand how jobs are created in america. >> john sununu and the romney campaign just couldn't gain any traction with their new attacks, because there's only one thing dominating the campaign trail right now. it's all about romney's taxes. a new poll suggests americans, they want to know what is in mitt romney's taxes. 56% of voters said romney should release the last 12 years of returns. 61% of independents want to see the last 12 years. and it doesn't stop with voters. tea party icon ron paul told politico, "in the scheme of things, politically, you know, it looks like releasing tax returns is what the people want." texas governor and alleged romney supporter rick perry had this to say. >> no matter who you are or what office you're running for, you should be as transparent as you can be with your tax returns and other aspects of your life. >> and the editors of the conservative "
and then i was out pressing my advantage, using every tax loophole but because i know those better than anything, we are going to change the tax code because i should not be able to get a 15% marginal rate when most americans are at 28 or 33. by the way, even though, yes, i was investing in switzerland and parked money in the bahamas, we need to close those loopholes as well because folks like me shouldn't be able to take advantage of that stuff when most americans cannot. if mitt romney just came out and admitted it and said yeah, i did all of this stuff but because i did it, i am embarrassed about it. it's shameful we have been able to have the system corrupted for the last years and i am going to change it. if he came out that way, my republican friend says and i agree, he would get some credibility because he would be acknowledging the truth and he would say, we need to fix this. instead, he is trying to run away from it and it's not helping him. he is digging a hole deeper and deeper. by the way, speaking of digging a hole deeper, wait until on the other
do it. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz start right now. >> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. there are 112 days until the election and breaking news on mitt romney's taxes. one of his former primary opponents is finally saying enough is enough. release the taxes. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> he has no idea how the american system functions because he spent his early years in hawaii smoking something. >> the romney campaign goes into the sewer to distract from mitt romney's tax problem. but new polling proves the american people aren't buying it. >> makes you wonder if some years he paid any taxes at all. >> michael steele and katrina on the unfolding disaster for the romney campaign. john mccain goes rogue and says sarah palin was a better candidate than mitt romney. how long until the republicans reach full revolt? i'll ask howard fineman. and bain capital is about to outsource 170 jobs from a company in freepert, illinois. but the town and the workers are fighting back. they're asking m
to burma which is even worse. you're like all right. as we keep saying, he used government money. they call the president a socialist again yesterday on his phone call. he used government money. >> he came crawling to the government asking for money. >> stephanie: and then oh my god, did you see what romney did yesterday? he twists obama's quote. he was talking about -- >> oh, yeah. >> stephanie: didn't you build the highways or bridges. he didn't say you didn't build your own business. they know this. >> it was such an obvious cut. there's one thing where you can go we narrowed it down to exactly his point. >> built it. >> america. >> stephanie: edited it with a meat ax. >> did you hear about the obamas kissing after they shared a socialist moment. they started making out just because they had probably just said something prosocialist. >> the obamas on the kiss cam at the basketball game. >> stephanie: they started making out? >> they just kissed. the point being is if they're going to cut what he said bef

>> that's all for now. i'm lester holt. thanks for joining us. >>> this morning we'll discuss the president's efforts to define his opponent. again the hot topic is mitt romney's tenure at bain capital. is his private sector experience his greatest strength or now a political weakness? with conflicting reports about exactly when romney left the company, the campaign's traded attacks about whether he was there when the firm began to outsource jobs, and whether romney was dishonest about his tenure. >> i think the times in the past are beneath the dignity of the presidency. i think the president needs to rein in his campaign and start talking about the real issues people care about. which relate to our economy. >> a new pretty negative turn in the campaign. so can romney clear the air about his bain record? we'll have more information about his personal finances and investment accounts and in the end is this what voters care about? with us senior adviser to the romney campaign, ed gillespie. then, the tax fight for the fall. will rates go up? and for whom? the president sets up
